Photography backdrops can be a solid blank color, including white black backdrops, to block out a background. They can also be images that create an imaginary background. Photographers use them to take pictures of models in their studios.
Step and Repeat can be placed at gathering points for guests to share photos of the event. Logos can be printed in an offset platform for a branded background, or entire graphic designs can be used as decoration for more visually stunning photos.
Most standard backdrops are printed on 13oz matte white vinyl, with a matte finish to prevent glares. Stitched fabric backdrops are available as a custom order.
Our backdrops can be made with pole pockets (most common), a flush cut, hemmed sides, and grommets for hanging.
At Signs NYC, we use HP latex ink. Latex ink provides a vibrant color that is true to the design using pantone color match printing. The ink will not run and resists damage.
We offer both standard and premium backdrop stands. Stands can expand from 5’ x 6’ to 8’ x 10’. Price varies.
5’ x 8’ stands are typically placed above the ground for a top-shot of the guests. They can fit as many as 5 to 6 people in front at a time.
Our most popular size, the 8’ x 8’ square can fit 3-5 people in front, and allow full body shots for all heights.
Adding 2’ to the width of the backdrop allows photographers to fit approximately double the number of people, from 6-7 total.
